Understanding Risk and Probability in Emergency Medicine

Thanks for downloading and reading our first St.Emlyn’s e-book. In it, we focus on decision making, arguably one of the most important core skills of medicine. In the acute specialities such as Emergency Medicine, Acute Medicine, Critical Care and Prehospital Care the complexities of clinical decisions are amplified by the time critical nature of our practice. We are often required to make decisions quickly, and also at a point in the patients journey when there may be significant uncertainty as to what the underlying cause of the patient’s injury or illness is.

We could not have put this work together without the help and guidance of all who have contributed to the St.Emlyn’s blog and podcast. Clearly, the authors of the following chapters, blogs and podcasts have contributed, but the wider #FOAMed community have moulded and guided us to think harder and deeper about decisions in a way that we could never have achieved on our own. See Chapter 3 for links and ideas on others in the #FOAMed world who think the same way that we do, and who love to share
what they know freely, openly and without deed or covenant.

Best wishes,
